The spectral analysis of nonlinear random wave loadings on circular cylinders is performed in this paper by means of nonlinear spectral analysis. The study is carried out by expressing the wave profile and velocities of water particles as a nonlinear composition of the first order wave profile. Under the assumption of the first order wave profile being a zero-mean Gaussian process, the random wave spectra of finite amplitude waves are given. In order to solve the loading spectra of the finite amplitude random waves, the drag force is extended into power series of velocity. The loadings of the finite amplitude random waves are then expressed as nonlinear compositions of the first order wave profile and its derivatives. These techniques made it easier to compute the spectral densities of the finite amplitude random wave loadings.
